AMK 1/48 MiG31B/BS Foxhound Fighter Kit


$67.95 $84.95

The Foxhound was developed as a successor to the Mig-25, to fulfill the promise of the far from perfect Foxbat, and this is done very well. It was shrouded in secrecy, and the advanced radar coupled with a capable targeting system allowed it to designate several targets at once, as well as giving it the ability to look down/shoot down, aircraft and cruise missiles, which was a first at the time.

The B model was fitted with in-flight refueling capability as well as a new radar system that was developed after it was found that the West now had the technical details of the previous installation. The BS was the upgraded Mig-31 base model that was re-deployed to B standards, to differentiate between marks, and was eventually replaced by the B in the 90s. Incidentally, the B was also built as an export model and designated the E, which may be of interest to those of us that like unusual schemes, such as the E that wore the striking blue/white/black scheme over its base grey at airshows.
